Scotland manager Craig Levein is continuing to monitor the progress of Blackpool winger Matt Phillips.

The 20-year-old featured for the England Under-20 side at last summer's World Cup but has been watched by Levein's chief scout Mick Oliver.

He scored a hat-trick in the 5-1 FA Cup defeat of Fleetwood Town on Saturday and has scored 13 times this season.

Phillips qualifies to play for Scotland through the grandparent rule and is aware of Levein's interest.
